Subject [jira] Commented: (PIVOT-707) TextArea cant be edited when pivot applet loses focus
Date Wed, 23 Feb 2011 15:13:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-707?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12998405#comment-12998405

Chris Bartlett commented on PIVOT-707:

Yes, by non-Pivot applet I mean a Java Applet that doesn't use any Pivot code.  I wanted to
see if the same problem happens in Firefox to *all* applets, or if it seems to only Pivot
ones.  This will help to determine if it is a Pivot problem, or a Firefox one (or something
else entirely).

I have tried to reproduce the issue with a few non-Pivot applets that I found from Google
searches, but so far they all seem to work OK.  Here is an example of one that allows typing
after it regains focus.  http://java.comsci.us/examples/awt/TextField.html

I also searched for Firefox applet issues regarding focusing and found a small number of reports
that seem to match the behaviour you described (and that I reproduced).  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1080699

A couple of postings seemed to suggest that this might be a fairly recent problem with Firefox,
and that it used to work with older versions.  If you able to install older Firefox versions,
that would also be a useful test.

It might also be good to ask a question to a Firefox/Linux mailing list or forum to see if
they have any suggestions.

> When using a TextArea component and change to another browser tab (or take another action
that cause the Pivot applet to lose its focus) then get back to the pivot applet browser's
tab and try to edit the text inside TextArea component: text will not change, nothing happens
neither the Applet Console shows any message. This behaviour can be reproduced with COmponent
Explorer in http://pivot.apache.org/demos/component-explorer.html.
